“Amazing food and stunning setting”
Reviewed June 4, 2014 via mobile

Wow! We were so pleased to have stumbled on this beautiful restaurant on the last night of our stay in Tahiti. Everything about this experience was special. The service, the cocktails, the exquisite food and wine. We went for the three course gourmet menu and were delighted with every course. The flavours and presentation created a gasp with every mouthful. This place alone is worth the visit to Tahiti.

“Best food on the entire trip”
Reviewed May 4, 2014

I spent three weeks in French Polynesia and my two dinners at Le Lotus (and one dinner at the equivalent restaurant at the IC Moorea) were the best meals I had on the trip. A very enjoyable evening, and I couldn't fault the food or the service.

“Very tranquil”
Reviewed May 3, 2014

Four of us ate here and all of us had a lovely meal. The one thing which lets this place down slightly is the length of time it takes in between courses...wine was delicious, perfect for what we ordered. The staff are very attentive and friendly. A perfect spot for a special occasion..

“Ambiance and great food”
Reviewed April 2, 2014

Within the Intercontinental Resort FAAA, the Lotus is probably one of if not the best restaurant in Tahiti. Beautiful location open air on the water, with a waterside table you can watch the fish. The food is gourmet. If you are brave try the Kangaroo it is fabulous. Service is excellent. Alcoholic beverages are a bit pricey.

“Good food with a view!”
Reviewed March 15, 2014

I enjoyed a very nice meal at this restaurant with a group. Service was good and the food was excellent. Open air environment right on the water very nice. If you are staying at the Intercontinental I would definitely recommend dining here.
